Wow. Thanks to MIKE JARVIS I discovered the beautiful and very creative work of CECELIA WEBBER. This is what she writes on her website about her & her work:

CECELIA WEBBER was born in a forest town of only 1,500 people and spent much of her childhood in fields catching orange salamanders. She was a shy, socially incompetent child who enjoyed reading and spent hours searching for small fairy creatures in abandoned maple sugar huts and dilapidated stonewalls.

Oddly enough, as she grew older the world grew stranger and stranger. Questions revolved about in her head, knocking down reality’s framework with the force of bowling balls: Why are we made to feel so ashamed of the human body in Western culture and so much of the rest of the world? Isn’t the body a beautiful, wonderful thing, deserving nothing less than to be celebrated? As her thoughts continued to evolve, Cecelia alighted upon a petal in her mind, a new-found platform from which she could quietly challenge the status quo: she created a digital image of a flower constructed entirely from photographs of the naked human body. Thus commenced her journey as a professional artist, as she continued to grow her Petal series, develop her impressionistic and modernist paintings, and even eke out a quirky web-comic, while of course still setting aside the majority of each day to chase orange salamanders and other fairy creatures.
